Kaotica Eyeball Review: Everything You Need To Know
The Kaotica Eyeball offers isolation for your microphone, minimizing the need for you to treat your recording space.
Some of the world’s greatest musicians have used the Kaotica Eyeball, including Paul McCartney, Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, 2 Chainz, The Weeknd, the Backstreet Boys, Offset, Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, and Dr. Dre.
The biggest takeaway of the Kaotica Eyeball is that you don’t need to sacrifice quality when you’re recording remotely.
It works! Off-axis sounds and room reflections are taken care of. You instantly dry up the room. Acoustic troubles, a la comb filtering, can be successfully managed with the Eyeball. What you get when you hit ‘stop’ on your recording is a perfectly-captured vocal performance that’s ready to be colored.
The source of the audio is projected directly into the Kaotica Eyeball mic. Sing close and straight in, at mouth level. You may need to adjust the amount of gain by a bit but that’s not a problem when everything else is cut down.
You don’t need a portable vocal booth. For musicians who can’t afford a vocal booth or who don’t have the space to accommodate one – be it in a mobile setting or at home – the Kaotica Eyeball can serve that purpose. The hole at the bottom, that’s where you put your microphone. Fortunately, it fits almost any size. Then, you’re done.
The Kaotica Eyeball acts as a traditional pop filter, yes, while also creating a sound space that mimics a booth.
How The Eyeball Mic Filter Works
It’s important to have realistic expectations as the Kaotica Eyeball is not going to eliminate all noise from a recording.
If you’re in a public setting and there’s noise ongoing, it’s not going to take care of it – nor should it have to. The primary effect of the Eyeball is as a high-end filter. It filters out the annoyances you don’t want clouding up your vocal track.
The Eyeball weighs only 5 ounces. It’s easy to throw in your recording bag and go. In terms of inserting it onto a microphone, there are no nuts and bolts or assembly required. It slips on in seconds and you’re done. It resembles an afterthought but this product contributes so much to the clarity of a recording.
Also, when you buy a Kaotica Eyeball, know that they’re hand-carved and machined, individually painted, and paired with a handmade pop filter, with all the work done in North America. This isn’t a product manufactured overseas where you don’t know what material was used or whether the quality is going to be there.
